Fives moving Machine Tool Services & Solutions business to new facility


Fives Machining Systems, Inc., a global machine tool and complete manufacturing solutions provider, has announced the relocation of its Machine Tool Services & Solutions business to a new production facility at 2200 Litton Lane, Hebron, Kentucky. The Machine Tool Services & Solutions business provides productivity enhancements and service support to aerospace and industrial manufacturers for the full range of machine tools in their facilities.

“With the tremendous growth we have experienced since the acquisition of the Konecranes MTS in January of this year and the addition of service centers in the key strategic markets of Wichita, Kansas, and Charlotte, North Carolina, our business has outgrown the space available in the former Konecranes MTS facility in Erlanger, Kentucky. This move provides the expanded floor space in a modern climate-controlled facility that is needed to accommodate the retrofit and rebuilding of our customers’ key assets,” said Steve Thiry, president & CEO of Fives Machining Systems Inc. “Our mission to be a world-class service and solutions provider requires the resources and infrastructure of a state-of-the-art production facility. It is an exciting expansion of our retrofit and rebuild capacity.”
